Egyptian tennis player, Mayar Sherif, talked about her historic feat of becoming the first Egyptian woman to reach the Roland Garros main draw.

Sherif had three qualifying matches before securing a spot in the main draw, during which she beat Colombian tennis prospect, Maria Camila Osorio Serrano.

She then went on to knockout USA’s Caty McNally and Giulia Gatto-Monticone from Italy, all the while not losing a single set.

Talking to DMC TV, the 24-year-old expressed her delight with her achievements and hopes to inspire younger generations.

“For me it’s been great. I hope that what I’m doing is motivating younger generations. I want them believe in themselves and achieve all their goals,” she said.

“For me this is the most important takeaway from my results. I hope that young girls can always keep their heads high and try and achieve all their goals,” she added.

Sherif then discussed the importance of the support she’s been receiving.

“It was a really pleasant surprise knowing that my results were everywhere and even Salah retweeted it and gave me his support,” she continued.

“Thankfully there’s a rise in the number of tennis fans and hopefully they will keep increasing as long as I keep these results,” explained the three-time African champion.

Her first Grand Slam main draw match will be no walk in the park as she will take on current word number 4, Karolina Pilskova.

“She’s one of the best tennis players in the world, she was ranked World number 1 at one point. But I will go into the game and do my best and try to improve, just like any other match,” she added.

“I want to thank the Egyptian Tennis Federation and the Olympic Committee for their support. I also want to thank my manager, Sherif Monsef, and Connection Marketing for their support as I feel that no other tennis player had such a strong support system.

“Also, Al Ahli bank sponsored and supported me which is also the first time to happen for an Egyptian tennis player.

“I would like to thank my parents, especially my mom who worked really hard and always believed in me. As well as my siblings for their amazing support on social media,” she concluded.

Along with Tunisia’s Ons Jabeur, Mayar Sherif is the only representative of an African country. Jabeur’s best run in this tournament was in 2017 when she reached the third round.
